There’s a special election being held on Tuesday in Cathedral City. Voters will decide the future of short-term rentals in the city.
Back in September, city council voted unanimously to phase out the majority of short term rentals by 2023. In response, a short-term rental advocacy group gathered enough signatures to trigger a referendum to overturn the ordinance.
On Tuesday, voters will see ‘Measure B’ on the ballot.
What does a "Yes" on Measure B mean?
A 'yes' vote on Measure B will uphold the council's decision to further regulate short term rentals, phasing out the majority by 2023.
What does a "No" on Measure B mean?
A 'no' vote will revert to a prior set of regulations, and continue to allow short-term rentals to operate.
Voters can drop off their mail-in ballots or vote in-person at three locations:
City Hall 68700 Ave Lalo Guerrero, Cathedral City, CA 92234
Northgate Community Church 30010 Date Palm Dr, Cathedral City, CA 92234
Cathedral City Public Library 33520 Date Palm Dr, Cathedral City, CA 92234
